Packers TE Mark Chmura and RB Dorsey Levens will also wear "The Defender." Also debuting Starter's new lid this weekend will be Cowboys RB Emmitt Smith, Dolphins LB Zach Thomas, Steelers RB Jerome Bettis, Raiders QB Jeff George, Bears LB Bryan Cox and Jaguars WR Keenan McCardell. Logo Athletic and Nike/Sports Specialties will also debut new headwear in the upcoming weeks (NFLP).
